PARENT & STUDENT EXPERIENCE
'Elijah has taken piano lessons with RC Music for over 5 years and has grown so much in his musical talent. Roger is an amazing teacher and was able to bring out the best in Elijah’s abilities. 2 years ago Elijah composed an original piece that Roger helped him with and was able to play it at the Spring recital… it was amazing! I just want to thank Roger & Kim so much for all you've done over the years, helping Elijah grow as a pianist… the memories I have are priceless! RC Music is an amazing music program with affordable prices & an amazing team that are truly invested in helping their students succeed.' Tamara M., Rancho Cucamonga

'If we could give RC Piano Lessons more stars we would! Roger Lino is an impressive musician and more importantly here, an encouraging teacher. It's rare to meet a teacher so good with children especially. His patience and unique techniques build confidence and skill. My daughter and I took lessons for a few years and while it didn't work out for our family to continue formal lessons what he has added to our life and family we will never forget. I whole heartedly recommend RC Piano Lessons to anyone interested in learning.' Alexis E., Rancho Cucamonga

'My daughter has taken lessons with Roger at RC piano since 2015. He is very knowledgeable in music and how to help students learn music and how to read music not just memorize songs. They are always accomidating to working with schedules and have open communication. He genuinely has a love for music and shares it with his students.' Tanya K., Upland
'My 8 year old daughter has been taking lesson from Roger and within the first few weeks she was playing songs. He is a wonderful instructor, everything you could wish for. He is patient, funny and has a very amazing way of teaching how to play piano, plus how to read music. And don’t get me started about Kimberly who does all the scheduling and payment processing! She is a wonderful person and is always so flexible with rescheduling lessons or answering any questions we have. I highly recommend RC Piano lessons!! ❤️' Celine S., Rancho Cucamonga
'This is a long time coming, but I never got around to giving my review on Roger and Kimberely. My girls were with them for years. He is a wonderful teacher. Very kind and patient. He knows how to communicate with children and adults alike. We stopped piano months ago only because it was time to move on. My girls just grew out of wanting to play. The hardest part for them was leaving Roger. They really just grew attached to him. After their last and final lesson they cried. They miss him a lot. Also Kimberely is very kind and helpful. Anytime I had to move our schedules around, she tried her very best to accommodate us. The work and effort they both put into the concerts is amazing. They are a wonderful team and I understand why Roger is always booked. There isn’t a teacher out there quite like him. Thank you for all the wonderful memories. You two are the best!' Lisa P., Upland
'My daughter and I have been taking lessons for over a year now. It has brought us so much more than I could have thought. Roger is an amazingly good teacher, with children and adults, and Kimberly keeps everything running so smoothly. They are both positive and supportive in lessons and in life. Signing up is one one of the best decisions we have ever made.' - Alexis E., Rancho Cucamonga
'When my wife and I found out about Roger from a friend we decided to give it a shot.. My daughter absolutely loves the lessons and the progress she's made over a very short period of time was absolutely incredible ... Roger has an amazing way of working with kids... and adults...He is patient and consistent...A year and a half into my daughter's practice I signed up for lessons myself and it was the best decision ever. Roger and Kimberly make a great team, they are very helpful and easy to work with... I would recommend RC Piano to everyone.' Pawel G., Rancho Cucamonga
'RC Music Lessons is a very well run business, and I would recommend them to everyone! Roger and Kimberly are very professional, organized and approachable. My daughter has been taking lessons with Roger for a year and a half now, and it has been amazing! She started playing with no experience, and he now has her playing Beethoven! He has taught her to read music, match pitch, and play. Roger approaches each lesson with a plan that is specific to my daughter's abilities. She is enjoying her lessons, and it's all thanks to Roger and Kimberly!' Lynn H., Rancho Cucamonga
'With a 5 and 7 year old primarily interested in playing outdoors or with their toys, Roger at RC Piano Lessons created not only an interest for my kids to learn how to play the piano, but other instruments as well. Rogers passion for music and teaching even inspired me to learn how to play the guitar at 37. It's never to late to learn! Roger is always patient in teaching how to read and play music. He tailors every lesson to his students and develops realistic goals that have proven successful in a short time.
It doesn't get better then RC Piano for private music lessons! With a very busy and ever-changing schedule, Kimberly is always patient and understanding when we need to reschedule lessons. She is an absolute pleasure to work with! We look forward to a growing knowledge of playing the piano and guitar as well as working with Roger and Kimberly in our music adventure. Thank you RC Piano Lessons!' Ozzie C., Upland
'When we started looking for piano lessons for our son, a good friend of ours recommended RC Piano Lessons. We are so happy that we found Roger. Our son looks forward to the lesson every week. He is not just teaching our son to play the piano; he is teaching him how to read music, play, and appreciate it. It is really as good as it gets for private piano lessons.' Nigel C., Rancho Cucamonga
'RC Piano Lessons has been teaching our son piano for over two years. Roger and Kim and their staff are the best. Roger has really brought out the best in our son. At six years old our he is playing incredibly well and reading very challenging music while exercising perfect pitch and vocals. The two of them clicked on day one and Roger easily maneuvers through challenges with him and inspires him greatly. Kim is very organized, detailed and a great communicator. Both Kim and Roger care greatly about every student and spend a lot of time planning for each individual and the group as a whole.' Michael H., Fontana
'Roger and Kimberly have been fabulous to work with. They are always so willing to accommodate our busy and hectic schedule. The kids genuinely enjoy Roger's approach to piano lessons and are doing so well. They have come a long way in the short time they have been taking lessons. I would not hesitate to recommend RC Piano to anyone. They are incredibly professional, easy to work with and the instruction is phenomenal.' Lauren C., Rancho Cucamonga
'(Please bear with my long post, I think you'll find it worthwhile.)
I studied child development in high school and college and from those studies I knew, that when I had children, I wanted them to learn to play music, most importantly to learn to READ music. I learned how beneficial playing and reading music is on the growing brain and on any brain really.
When my boys were 8 and 10 years old, we had the opportunity to buy a keyboard piano.
Right away, I started to research piano teachers in the area and was so pleased to find RC Music Lessons. Their focus is teaching students to read music, not just play songs.
I saw a video of Roger (our piano teacher) where he compared, exercising your brain with music as you do your body with sports.
(Roger was also a soccer coach). I really liked that, since we are an active family and know the importance of keeping our bodies healthy through eating right and exercising.
Feeding our brains is just as important.
Our kids took to Roger and learning the piano seamlessly and really enjoy it. Roger has a way of teaching them progressively, he builds on what they are learning and what they know. He has them write music as well as sends them videos to help them practice.
It has been two years of weekly lessons with Roger and we couldn't be happier with the on going results. I love to hear their music playing throughout the house as they practice and I especially love when they can pick up a sheet of music and play it.
Kimberly, Roger's wife does the scheduling and handles the business part of their company and is amazing to work with. She is very thorough, organized and does her best to accommodate schedules.
I feel like we found a gold mine with this company.
Roger and Kimberly are awesome, the price is right, and WHAT!!?? the lessons are done in your own home?!
You don't have to rush to make your appointment or sit in your car or a waiting room.
You can be at home, while your other children do homework, you fix dinner or just get other things done.
Win, Win, Win!
I am obviously very happy with this company and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to learn to play music.' Keri P., Rancho Cucamonga
'My daughter Nya has taken Skype piano lesson with Roger Lino for about 9 months. He is a fantastic teacher! Always patient and makes his students feel supported. His calm demeanor goes a long way when teaching, especially with a nervous new student. I highly recommend for any ages.' Teresa G., Fresno
'Great teacher who's very patient with kids. Piano lessons with him are Maia's highlight of the week!' Magda S., Rancho Cucamonga

'I love learning piano with my teacher Roger. He is fun and very patient with me.' Helena M., Upland
‘Having grown up with music, I wanted my kids to learn as well. Mr. Lino has been wonderful in teaching them the basics as well as cultivating an appreciation and love of music. They have even started to practice daily on their own! It's also important that he is able to come to our home due to having another child (special needs) who gets therapy at home.’ Joanne K., Corona
'My neighbor recommended Roger to me because I was looking for a piano teacher for the kids. He was teaching her 8 year old daughter and told me how much she liked him and how great he is with kids. Everything she said was true. I have a 7 year old and a 5 year old. He is wonderful with them. Very patient. The way he teaches them keeps them interested and curious to learn more. My children are picking up piano very quickly and enjoy it. I highly recommend him!' Lisa P., Upland
'Roger is an amazing piano teacher! My daughter looks forward to him coming every week. She is so much more enthusiastic about the piano than I ever thought she would be. I would recommend Roger to any of my friends and family.' Emilee G., Rancho Cucamonga
'Roger is a transformative teacher. My little boy loved music - but he could never sit still or concentrate for very long. Roger told me not to worry. Everyone can learn music. And he meant it. My son plays the piano everyday and he loves it. Roger is AMAZING!' Amy T., Upland
